RafaLint: March 29th
If you care to believe anything Marca writes (their track record isn’t that great), Rafa payed a “surprise visit” to his knee doctor this week. Here’s what I want to know: what is their definition of surprise? Is it that the doctor/Rafa didn’t expect this visit to be needed? Did Rafa show up on the doctor’s doorstep and yell “Surprise”? Was it a surprise birthday party for the doctor? Or that Rafa didn’t feel the need to inform the press that he was going to see his doctor for on-going follow-up/treatment for a well documented issue? I mean, seriously. Next thing you know, they’ll be ticked off he isn’t keeping them informed about his potty schedule.
- Interview on Brazilian TV. (with partial English subtitles)
- Stalkery video and interview – in which we learn Rafa’s a jay-walker and visits stores with huge pictures of himself in the front window.
- Promo for Barcelona. Is it just me, or is it odd that there’s so little footage of tennis being played in Barcelona in the video?
- IW practice footage. And, from the same uploader, forehand slo-mo…it’s kind of hypnotizing.
- Love @all has updated her photos to include the men’s final at IW.
- Dryad61 has added more IW Rafa photos. Then check out her photos of a very smiley Rafa practice.
- I posted eleventy billion photos from my Saturday at IW.
Rafa does social media:
- Rafa’s happy about the footie results.
- On Wednesday, he was ChefRafa.
- He had some visitors after practice today.
Social media related to Rafa:
- Bar Rafaeli posted a picture of her refrigerator – Rafa made the photo collage on it twice.

Oh dear, Rafa’s clay season shirt looks more blue than green here. Do I need to rethink my finger nail color plan for MC? Why so complicated? Nike should just list color equivalents for many different nail polish brands. ;) I think my toe color is still okay with the shorts, though. And if not, I don’t care because it’s beautiful.
